Sadly, many people rush out to buy a pet without prior consideration. A dog is a real commitment. Dogs must be thoroughly trained in order for them to be well-behaved and not give you any problems. If you decide to adopt a puppy or dog, use the tips in this article to get a good start.

When you are training your dog with a leash, try to ensure that the leash is loose. This gives your dog the option to explore and walk around freely. Due to their excitement, they will try to pull on their leash. The smart owner discourages this behavior, teaching the dog to walk with a slack leash instead.

Be certain not to give the dog mixed signals in the aftermath of bad behavior. When your dog pees on the couch, for example, don’t laugh. Doing so will really set back your training sessions. Even if your dog does something hilarious, be consistently stern in your corrections of misbehavior.

When thinking about barking, stay aware of activities or the environment when the dog is barking too much. Being aware of what triggers your dog’s barking can help you correct the situation. You could bring your dog into these situations and correct it when it starts barking.

Be prepared to reward the dog as soon as it completes a positive behavior. You want to be able to reward your dog when he does what you want him to do. This is the proper way to make sure that your dog learns the difference between right and wrong.

Training methods you use should be consistent. When more than one person is training your dog be sure that you are using the same word as a command and discipline. The dog will have an easier time learning if he has only one set of commands to learn and if he knows what response each behavior will receive.

Set small, easy goals when you start training your dog. You will both get instant gratification and establish a good foundation which you and your dog can build on. Your training will become more productive.

When training your dog, remember to be patient. This will keep you and your pupy from becoming frustrated or angry. Your dog wants to make you happy, but sometimes it just does not understand you.

If you’re a dog owner, you might think that it’s impossible to teach your dog. It is not difficult to train a dog, no matter how busy your schedule is. It is about understanding what your dog needs.

You can train a pooch to roll over fairly quickly if you have some treats to hand out. Start by commanding the animal to lie down. Then, put a treat close to the floor near the side of the dog’s head, and gradually raise it over its head to the opposite side. They should follow that treat with their nose, which should cause them to roll over. Upon seeing him roll over, issue the command. You can then repeat the command to the point where he rolls over without the added incentive of a treat. It may take some time for your dog to perfect the trick, but it’s a popular move and one that is sure to impress others.

Spray your dog with water to discourage bad behavior at home. This helps the dog learn which behaviors are not acceptable. Your dog will learn to associate these behaviors with the water and will stop doing them.

Even a dog you have had for years can be trained if you are patient and use the right methods. It is smart to take quick action, though, so that the dog does not harm others due to a lack of training.
